I like smaller trucks/cars.
I stayed away from trucks bc I just thought of them as a gas hog.
I am a bit of a power junky too.
So if i was going to get a truck I wanted power too.
I was looking at the Dodge 5.7hemi motor for it's power.
I test drove a 2007 hemi and a 2010 4.7 and thought they were both the 5.7L until the salesman pointed it out to me.
I got a deal on a 2009 4.7 dodge quad cab and love it.
It can pull a loaded 16ft trailer tractor with ease( about 4000lbs).
It can pull trailer and still get 15mpg.
I'm gettting 24mpg highway and about 16 suburb driving.
I drives like a car and is very comfortable.
